Psalm 125

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David


   1  Who place on Zion's God their trust,
         like Zion's rock shall stand;
      Like her immovably be fixed
         by his almighty hand.
   2  Look how the hills on ev'ry side
         Jerusalem enclose;
      So stands the Lord around his saints,
         to guard them from their foes.
   3  The wicked may afflict the just,
         but ne'er too long oppress,
      Nor force him by despair to seek
         base means for his redress.
   4  Be good, O righteous God, to those
         who righteous deeds affect;
      The heart that innocence retains
         let innocence protect.
   5  All those who walk in crooked paths
         the Lord shall soon destroy;
      Cut off th' unjust, but crown the saints
         with lasting peace and joy.
